comment Is there any virus that contains both DNA and RNA in its genome?
@anongoodnurse. You are correct, these viruses contain only DNA as their genetic material. But they also contain this capsid protein found exclusively in RNA viruses. So technically, yes, it is a DNA virus. Evolutionary, it is probably a DNA:RNA hybrid virus.

comment What is the biological significance of k-mer counting?
These 3 applications are fundamental in biology. I gave short descriptions of each one. You can look them up if you want to know more.

That's a very good (and interesting) question. Will let you know if I find the answer.

I am not saying they exist 100%. I am just saying that it makes sense.

A professor I talked to at a conference mentioned it, so I know they exist, I just don't know how they are called. And it definitely makes sense for them to exist, since these ORFs are so long.
